The last time I checked there was no recycling program (that I noticed) for Brita water filters in the US. Either I missed it or it wasn't in place yet.
Long story short, now you can recycle the filters:
- This comes from a partnership with TerraCycle
- Once per year, you can get a label to use for free shipping of filters
- It must be a minimum of 5 pounds of filters - so ask your friend group, coworkers, neighborhood group, etc. to chip in and mail them all at once.
